County Council approved funding to update population and growth projections for the County and Townships as part of the 2013 budget. The population and growth projections will support a number of initiatives in Sustainable Actions and assist with long-range planning for a variety of departments and organizations.
Watson & Associates Economists Limited was retained to revise their work from 2011. As they did previously, Watson reviewed background information including development applications, Official Plan policies, building permits, MPAC information and other data, as well as a significant amount of data from Statistics Canada. This background information was used to produce estimates for changes in population and demographics projections from 2011 to 2036.
The Natural Heritage Study (NHS) is a comprehensive evaluation of natural heritage features such as wetlands, forest cover, and wildlife habitat at a regional scale across the County, and includes the mapping of a connected system of these features. The mapping is accompanied with policy recommendations that can be used by planners to protect significant natural features from development. This comprehensive regional review of natural heritage mapping and policies set a foundation for the natural heritage policies of the first draft of the County Official Plan.
